This was our first visit to the Jolly Frog and it certainly won't be the last! We had the prix fixe menu at lunchtime. The food was excellent value, promptly served and extremely tasty. The ambience was French, perhaps the only criticism would be that there weren't any French cheeses on the cheeseboard-plenty of excellent Local ones though.

We have come here many times for special occasions over the years. Last Friday evening there were only 3 or 4 tables occupied, which suggest something. The service was very slow even so; I hate to think what it would be if they were actually busy. The fish soup was not the fish soup we have really enjoyed before; very... More

Oh, this place is just fabulous! Old-fashioned bistro-style food with a modern twist. There is a real pizza oven and the pizzas are fantastic. Fish is always good, as are desserts. The wine list is sensibly short, and well chosen, and the local staff extremely friendly and obliging. In the dead of winter, just after New Year, we had a... More

Visited here today, having received a local recommendation, for my birthday lunch. Although the main courses we had were nice, we were expecting more. The plaice was tasty, but a little overpriced for what you got; the fish and chips were apparently 'ok' and the turkey nice, but again not good enough for the price we thought. Service as expected,... More

Had my birthday lunch with my husband at the jolly frog this weekend. Friendly and relaxed. Food was excellent ( I had squid followed by cod ) and good size portions. Unhurried ( we were there over 2 hours). Will definitely be back.

This is our favourite restaurant, although half an hour's drive away - always friendly, cosy, reliable and relaxed. There is a varied menu, frequently changed, and the "early bird" menu" served from 6pm is particularly good value. There are also a good selection of dishes for vegetarians and a proper pizza oven. In the summer there are tables with a... More

The Jolly Frog - a beautiful french-styled pub with very friendly staff and great value, tasty food. We were recommended this by a friend and are really pleased with our visit. It is especially good for fish dishes but there are plenty of meat options too. If you are trying to find it from the A49 it is before you... More

We are regular customers but wanted to say the food just gets better and better. We were treated today to an amazing amuse bouche as part of the Christmas menu and for mains my husband had the bouillabaisse while I had the cod. The photo is of the amuse bouche. We can also recommend the Smoking Lady Voignier!

After being recommended by friends, this had a lot to live up to....and it did. Very welcoming and good atmosphere. With two menus to choose from, a la carte and fixed price, plenty of good food and great value for money. Will be back soon!!

Once again I was taken here for my Gebutstag (is she being unimaginative or is she on commission?) I can fairly say that it was even better than last time. They clearly read my review and saw me coming as I got the French fries this time and they were, to use the vernacular; "Super Bien". The sea food theme... More

The menu is a reassuring blend of French Country Cuisine, and Italian favourites, using authentic ingredients. Rustic, authentic, and relaxing in decor and style, you can't help but immerse yourself in everything the Jolly Frog has to offer.
